STD Awareness Month

STD-awareness-GYTThis is STD Awareness Month and, for the fifth year, MTV, the Kaiser Family Foundation, Planned Parenthood and the Centers for Disease Control are partnering in the GYT Campaign – ”Get Yourself Talking, Get Yourself Tested.”  

Carol Bafaloukos of Planned Parenthood Arizona says there are 20 million new STD infections each year in the United States, with half among the under-25 age group.

Bafaloukos says many STDs cause no symptoms, so the only way to know is to get tested.  The good news, she says, is that virtually all STDs are treatable and many are curable.
